Phylogenetic footprinting software tools | Phylogenomics

Phylogenetic footprinting software tools | Phylogenomics One of the current challenges facing biologists is the discovery of novel functional elements in noncoding genomic sequence. With the rapidly increasing number of genomes being sequenced, a comparative genomics approach called ‘phylogenetic footprinting’ has become a favored method for such discovery. The idea underlying phylogenetic footprinting is that selective pressure causes functional elements to evolve at a slower rate than the nonfunctional surrounding sequence. Therefore the most conserved motifs in a collection of homologous regions are excellent candidates as functional elements.
